    We were there early January. Stayed at Quobba Homestead. What a beautiful spot. We will definately go back and stay longer next time. Make sure you stop at the Blowholes-Tuckerbox van. Super friendly, great food and he can even give you some tips on what to do in the area.

    This was such a great experience! Special shoutout to Les (volunteer) he was super informative and helpful and provided great service, along with the lady who was at the ticket desk. The museum had a great range of interactive activities and informative history. Would definitely recommend coming here it was an 11/10 visit!

    Amazing and breathtaking is all I can say😄as you drive into the national park. Views are simply spectacular and I love the isolation of this park. You feel so alone and yet not alone. Campsite was huge and the toilet clean, lots of space to move around and beautiful sunrise and sunset views from camp...it’s a must visit.

    A great spot to see a great sunset or just go for a stroll. Some were fishing and swimming but I just found it a relaxing place to chill out and look at the beautiful homes nearby.

    Great service with lots of helpful suggestions on eating out and things to see. The souvenir stocks are lovely – a great place to get gifts.

    We could have spent a whole day here – there is so much interesting information which has been expertly put together. This amongst other things, makes Carnarvon worth stopping in for a few days during your travels. The Centre has displays suitable for all ages. Adults will obviously want to spend more time here than the children but maybe the centre could arrange a pass out system to return the next day when the kids are fresh and will oblige another few hours visit. Wherever you stay in Carnarvon, do make sure you look up at the OTC Centre at night to see it illuminated – a stunning view (particularly from the caravan park below). Highly recommended.

    Worth a look especially if you like to see old railway relics. A bit disappointed with the cafe and entry fee for the museum which didn't look all that big to warrant the fee.Memorabillia would have been nice to purchase especially with the jetty now closed.

    Friday night at the Carnarvon Yacht Club was splendid. Stunning location with plenty of tables and chairs. A superb Chilli Con Carne with all the trimmings cooked by volunteer chefs Karl and Carmie. Different dishes and BBQ also offered on other Friday nights. Twenty dollars each including a glass of decent vino.
    Bargain!

    Stayed at Gnarloo Station for 4 nights in the School Holidays .... we really enjoyed it although it was extremely windy so we didn’t put our awning up in case it was ripped off ( unfortunately there was a family with a similar van to ours that had this happen )
    There are flushing toilets and bore water showers so after being self sufficient at Quobba Station for the four days prior we were all overjoyed at this!!
    The lady in the General Store was so lovely and remembered my name every time I went in which I thought was a nice touch. Surrounding beaches where beautiful and we took a drive to Nature bay to snorkel ( so amazing)
    We also drove to Red Bluff to check it out ... we will revisit this another time as it was a lovely spot.
    The only downside is there isn’t a dump point for the caravan toilet but it wasn’t a deal breaker that’s for sure! Also there is no Wifi 99.5% of the time ... for us that was great as we enjoyed our time with the kids and friends we caught up with.
    Can’t wait to return... it was a great spot!

    The old shearing shed, yards and shears accomodation is good to see with lots of info boards spread around. But the winner is the hot pool. We went at 10pm and have never seen so many stars in our life’s. Take a touch if going at night as it is pitch black from the car park to the pool area which has no lighting. It really is a must to sit in this 40° naturally heated water in the dark.

    We went to look at the cultural centre
    It was well set out with some parts are free and another part you had to pay a fee
    We went into the payed section and a really nice man told us about the tribes in the area before we went in.
    I must say I could have sat down and listened to the man all day, he was so interesting to listen to
    We loved the experience and bought some items
    Great place to visit

    This is a lovely little market with lots of fresh produce on offer. the prices are excellent, there is a good variety of items and everything looks fresh and inviting. The market is held beside the Visitor Information Centre in the centre of town and is well worth a visit.
